Policies and Regulations

Basic Approach to Create a Workplace for Diverse Employees

We have developed systems that help our employees maintain a healthy work-life balance so that they are able to lead fulfilling private lives, while achieving a high performance. We make every effort to create a corporate culture that furthers this goal.
At Oriental Land Co., Ltd., we are trying to create an environment in which employees can gain experience and reach their full potential. In other words, we are focusing on boosting inclusion.
Aiming to raise the proportion of female managers to at least 25 percent by FY 2025, we are working to expand our training and education programs, and to ensure that employees are able to continue along their career path while raising children or caring for family members.

Actions and Performances

Initiatives for Work-Life Balance

At Oriental Land Co., Ltd., as part of our initiatives to help employees maintain their work-life balance, we have systems that allow a leave of absence to provide childcare, a vacation to care for sick children, a leave of absence or vacation to provide family care, and paid leave in half-day increments.
Employees avail themselves of paid leave in hourly increments and use the flexible working hours system in a way suitable for each job.

 

For Theme Park Operation Employees who sustain our Theme Park operations, certain systems for corporate employees are offered to them. For Cast Members who also sustain our Theme Park operations, short work shifts are made available to help stay-at-home parents and students balance work and family responsibilities or studies. For Cast Members looking to take on longer shifts, we have in place a smartphone-based system, through which they can apply to fill available shift slots to achieve a more flexible workstyle.

At Oriental Land Co., Ltd., we strive to reduce overwork and extra hours of the employees by cultivating appropriate time management skills for managers,reviewing numbers of each positions regularly, and installing tools for further efficiency.

In FY 2019, at Oriental Land Co., Ltd., the average extra hours worked monthly amounted to 18 hours and 19 minutes.

Furthermore, as benefits for corporate employees and contract workers, Oriental Land Co., Ltd. has in place an optional asset-building support system. This system offers our corporate employees and contract workers an opportunity to build assets in preparation for a secure post-retirement life after 60 years old by enrolling in a bonus-based defined contribution pension plan.
Having these programs in place alone is not enough if employees are to achieve a healthy work-life balance. We must also nurture a culture that encourages employees to use them. At Oriental Land Co., Ltd., we employ various methods so that employees are aware of the childcare and family care support programs that are available to them. We will continue to work toward creating a culture that enables each and every employee to enjoy a better work-life balance.

Initiatives to Support Employees with childcare

At Oriental Land Co., Ltd., we adopt a wide range of systems designed to help employees keep working while fulfilling childcare responsibilities.
We have set up a childcare leave program for all employees, which is available until the day before the child reaches 12 months of age. According to circumstances, the period can be extended until the child reaches 18 or 24 months of age, or until the first April 30 after the child turns 24 months of age if his/her birthday is in April.
We also have introduced various programs for employees returning to work after taking childcare leave: childcare hours, reduced working hours for childcare, exemptions from working extra hours, late-night and holiday shifts, as well as time off to care for sick children. In FY 2016, we additionally introduced a childcare subsidy program for corporate employees who work in shifts if their spouse also works.

Furthermore, on March 23, 2020, we opened Kids’ Village Arbre, a company-financed childcare facility within our premises to support employees who wish for early return to work, thereby helping them plan their careers from a medium- and long-term perspective and achieve growth by making maximum use of their time.
